About this project

The Humble Kings Tour is a ground breaking collaboration between the New York City-based band and the Israeli military's very own rockin' musicians.  The Humble Kings, in their work with the Israel Service Organization, have been charged with raising funds for their latest project--a tour of Army and Airforce bases all over Israel to show these young (average age 19!) soldiers that we here in the U.S. support them.

We can only make this happen with your support!  We need to raise enough money in the next 2 months to fund our project and get the band over to the Promised Land.  The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have expressed their appreciation for our mission and have generously offered to help with transportation and lodging on the bases.  The ISO is a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization so your pledge is tax deductible (minus the value of goods received).  The money we raise will help to fund the sound equipment for the shows and the stage set up.  Check out our past work with the IDF at www.israelservice.org and www.humblekings.com.  This year will be the best yet and this collaboration will bring two worlds together in a way that's never been done before.  Be a part of our mission and please make a generous pledge today!  

Risks and challenges

A big hurdle has ALREADY been overcome with the Humble Kings being granted official permission from the IDF to perform on actual army bases. No other U.S. band has been given this kind of access!

We also have that small matter of possible military action on some of the bases we are scheduled to play at..but this hasn't stopped the Humble Kings in the past and it won't stop us this time! We've performed while hearing rockets flying over the desert nearby, and we've accommodated last minute show changes when the base we were on suddenly had to take care of business. Some of our best shows have been after a last minute changes in location. We know that with your support, we will be successful and give these soldiers a rocking good time!
